Subject: a cool show
Henry Kaiser really lays down some tasty licks on this. Bobby is bobby and Vega and PP hold down the low end. I really dig the Tomorrow never knows well minus vince screaming but that's another story. I would love to check out the other show from the Fillmore of this band. Good sound quality sounds like a board to me.

Subject: no bill murray
the backup vocals on Queen Jane are Vince. The Bill that Bobby refers to in One More Sat Night is Bill Clinton. If you listen to versions of Sat Nite over the years, in the verse "turn on my TV, the president comes on the news" Weir sometimes would interject "c'mon Georgie" for Bush number one (the version on Without a Net for example) or in this case "c'mon Bill" after "take out my rockin' shoes".

Subject: Nice Show, but where's the older one?
I came on here looking for the older one, that opens with Mystery Train, I think--and bears the same name. Still from Fukuoka Dome, and still nearly same personnel. That is a gem I want on my iPod.

Subject: Garcia vs. Kaiser
Apples and oranges. I like both of them, for completely different reasons. Good show here. Fukuoka only looks and sounds funny if you're a white bread suburban kid. Having grown up in S.F. it does niether for me. Again, apples and oranges.
Not better or worse, just different.

I'm looking for a recording of the cover of Z.Z. Top's La Grange that Hank did in Japan around 1990 or so with a volunteer from the audience. Anybody familiar with it?

Subject: Clueless..??..
Wow, what a great show- and quite the all-star line-up too. Sound is very good as well. Kaiser rocks (check out Psychedelic Guitar Circus for more)

Now on to the clueless.

One interpid reviewer wrote:

"While I fully admit to not being a huge "deadhead" , Garcia could have only dreamed about laying down the guitar tracks Kaiser did at this show."

This has to be one of the most ignorant comments I've seen about an artist on this here archive. If you'd spent some time actually listening to the Dead instead of downgrading Garcia in a review you might not look such like a musical dingus next time.

Seriously say trying it out loud. Right?
The music is cool too. I bet Bill Murray laughed at that name

Subject: A letter from the UK
I think it's unfair on both parties to make comparisons between Jerry and Henry Kaiser here. All that needs to be said is that this show is a gem and a must have for both Deadheads and Henry Kaiser fans.

It's kind of inevitable that Bill "Groundhog Day" Murray makes an appearance here - in some ways things are just the same, in others they're not. I would say that it's Henry Kaiser that's playing the role of Phil Connors, which kind of explains everything.

Finally, thanks to the Archive for (eventually) making this show available for download again, and for making everything else available. I'm like a child with the keys to the sweet shop/candy store. Keep up the good work.

Subject: This ones a keeper!
Great sound quality, great music. Kaiser is much more rocking than I have heard him be before. While I fully admit to not being a huge "deadhead" , Garcia could have only dreamed about laying down the guitar tracks Kaiser did at this show. Fantastic.
